Students and staff at DGH will be practising Fire Drills and Lockdown Drills over the course of the school year. For those with older students, you know that we hold several practices for both situations early on in the school year and then a few more as the year continues. We update and maintain our emergency procedures each year.
The goal in doing so is to give students and staff the knowledge and confidence to react appropriately should the need arise.
Students become quite good at knowing how to react in these situations and the practices help to reduce a great deal of stress.
Should your daughter or son come home and mention having taken part in these practices, please feel free to discuss what has taken place.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact the school at 705-786-1915.
